WHAT IS DELTA 8 THC, AND WHAT ARE ITS EFFECTS?

Updated: May 20

There are more than 100 cannabinoids naturally occurring in the Cannabis plant. The two major and most studied ones are Delta 9 THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol) and CBD (Cannabidiol). While we have some foundational knowledge about them, we know much lesser about the minor cannabinoids like CBG (Cannabigerol), CBN (Cannabinol), Delta 8 THC (Delta-8-Tetrahydrocannabinol), and others.

WHAT IS 8 THC

Delta 8 THC (Or simply Delta 8) is a chemical compound found in small concentrations in the Cannabis plant. National Cancer Institute defines it as an analog of Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) with antiemetic, anxiolytic, appetite-stimulating, analgesic, and neuroprotective properties. For achieving more significant quantities of Delta 8, commercial growers use selective breeding and molecular isolation.
